Avis Scholarship recipient Anne Hobbs recently extended her prize winner’s trip to New York by taking in some of America’s most iconic attractions, including the awe-inspiring Niagara Falls, Florida’s Disneyworld and the opulent Bellagio, Las Vegas.

Avis Scholarship winner Anne Hobbs enjoys New YorkThe 2013 Scholarship winner – who received two return Qantas business class flights to the US as part of her prize – also embarked on a classic road trip, driving from Nevada to California’s Yosemite National Park then exploring the legendary Highway 1, which winds down the US West Coast from San Francisco to Los Angeles.

Anne says the California coastline is undoubtedly one of the world’s most spectacular road trips.

“You hug the coast, which means you can’t go too fast, and along the way you have plenty of time to enjoy some amazing scenery, as well as plenty of seals,” she says.

“The highlight of the trip, however, was still New York. Everyone told me it was big and amazing, and it certainly was all that and more. It’s just a fantastic city.”

Now in its 18th year, the Avis Travel Agent Scholarship recognises and rewards consultants who consistently deliver outstanding customer service. Along with a return trip to the Big Apple, recipients enjoy a range of educational and travel-related prizes valued in excess of $40,000.

This year’s winner will be announced in Sydney on 21 October when four finalists attend the final judging session at the Four Seasons Hotel Sydney.
